Default Trimmer pots for onboard guitar preamp tone controls?

Are trimmer pots suitable for tone and volume controls?

I'll be using them in an onboard guitar preamp.
I want to use the smallest possible pots, because this is going to be at least two channels, and I want to keep the size down as much as possible.

Trimmers? The way guitarists like to tweak? They will wear out in no time

Just bring 'em to the front panel.



Cheers!

There could wind up being quite a few of them if I use multiple electret capsules like i'm thinking with separate tone controls.
